Updating garmin nuvi 250w

I called Garmin Tech support and they asked if I had hi-speed internet ( I DO) they then had me go to a website , there they then gave me a code to put into my pc and connected my computer to theirs. The tech support then proceded to fix my Nuvi over the inernet.

He took out some files added some files in my Nuvi and then updated my nuvi to 2.60 and every thing works great now.

This is something that the user does, albeit most likely inadvertently.

I would still try to get the map source disk for a future emergency if Garmin does give you a fix on the telephone.

Have you tried to re-run poi loader and this time select delete pois in case it may be some kind of conflict with the pois? Also try the map update and maybe you will get lucky.

The link you provided, I've already been to..help either. A lot of people including me have gotten the disk for free so I would not give up on the first try. Enter your 25 digit unlock code (without the hyphens) in this file and reboot. If it doesn't - it would because either a) the code's wrong or b) the map file is not called GMAPPROM. UNL file in situ and stopped doing it for some reason.

I guess I'll be talking to Garmin begging for a disc. It may be a little hard for you because according to your post you have had the unit more then a year. IMG (potentially it could be GMAPPROM1, or even GMAPSUPP - in which case the . Try that and report back With your nuvi connected to your computer with the USB cable, can you confirm the presence of the following files on your nuvi? - this is your basemap - this is your preloaded detail maps - this is a supplemental map file The simple act of loading POIs would not have deleted your maps. (My original C510 came with one and its replacement didn't).

Hi folks..per subject, I can't run my nuvi250w immediately after downloading new POI's from this site. Can this thing be reset using the little hidden button on the bottom or do i need to go to Garmin site and try to download my maps. When the unit goes thru it's nornal startup, it displays the "loading maps" at the bottom of the screen after which it then says it has no detailed maps and can't run.

It said I had downloaded 2 items and then when I did the proper disconnect from my Windows PC, disconnected the nuvi and then restarted it, it came up with the following display.."No detailed maps found that support routing. It had 2008 maps, and says when starting up "copyright2007". I went to the Garmin site and looked up my account which provided the info about the originally installed Map Source product ie NT2008, deluxe all regions apr07 and listed my Unlock Code and orginal date of unlock when i first bought it (Nov22,2007) The site talks about going to a Map Source file and using the unlock code.

My point is, call garmin tech support and see if they can help!!!!

They have been great about all my calls over the last 4 years. They are the best tech support I have ever come across for anything.

you surmised, no disc came with the 250w and now I find that that is where i would look for Map Source and a possible repair.
